THE DODGE TRIO A true ensemble of three virtuosi, artistically and temperamentally related—a rare occurrence among great instrumental soloists. During the twelve seasons of the existence of this trio, it has appeared before the most critical audiences of musical Boston and New England, each season adding to its laurels and a host of admirers of its work. The programs presented are of a dignified character, readily appreciated by the musical layman and dilettante alike, as being of unusual interest, finish and perfection. This trio has long been recognized as the preëminent ensemble organization of Boston. Figure THE DODGE TRIO WILLIAM F. DODGE A violin virtuoso of rare attainment and acknowledged merit. Mr. Dodge possesses a thorough and masterful command of his instrument. He is an artist whose beauty, warmth and sonority of tone inspires a genuine admiration. His personality is full of magnetic vigor and charm. His judgment in ensemble playing in all of its intricate phases, is rich in mature experience and inspiration. He has appeared with many of the leading orchestras of the country, including the Boston Opera Orchestra, of which he was concert-master; the Philadelphia Symphony Orchestra; the Manhattan Opera Orchestra; the Boston Festival Orchestra and the Boston Municipal Orchestra, of which he was also the conductor. Mr. Dodge, the conductor and violin soloist played the Saint Saens Rondo Capricioso for his solo number. It was a fine performance, one remarkable for its breadth of style and sincerity. It was received with marked applause.— “Herald, Boston.” William F. Dodge, the violinist, a member of the Philadelphia Symphony Orchestra, scored a success with his artistic playing. His tone is full and sweet, without losing in strength or force. His bowing firm, vigorous and facile—in every detail he showed himself a master of his instrument, and the applause he received was a merited tribute to his ability.— “Enquirer, Philadelphia.” CARL W. DODGE A superb artist, and of the most pleasing and distinguished type. Every appearance he makes is a veritable musical triumph. A constant aim toward all that is good and true in his art has brought him to the front rank of cellists. He has appeared as soloist with many of the leading musical organizations of Boston and for four seasons was soloist of the Boston Municipal Orchestra, only relinquishing this position to become a leading cellist in the Boston Opera Orchestra. Mr. Dodge has devoted himself entirely to concert and solo work, appearing as soloist with the Boston Festival Orchestra under Emil Mollenhauer. His popularity is a matter of common knowledge; no other cellist is better known. The cellist, Mr. Dodge, created a most favorable impression. He expressed a distinct personality, playing throughout the whole evening with unfailing intonation, beauty of tone and enthusiasm.— “Herald, Boston.” Yesterday's program of the Festival Orchestra, under Emil Mollenhauer, was different **** Mr. Dodge was the soloist. His selection was the O'Cara Memoria by Servais, rendered with such telling effect that he was obliged to respond to a double encore.— “Baltimore, Maryland.” ERNEST W. HARRISON Ernest W. Harrison, coming from the Pacific Coast in 1898, has been associated with the musical life of Boston for the past sixteen years. During that time he has appeared with many of the leading artists of the country, both vocal and instrumental, and has become known as a thorough musician in every sense of the word. His technique is absolutely flawless and he may be counted among those who realize how much beauty of tone can be produced from the pianoforte. His long and varied experience in ensemble playing ideally meets the demands made upon him by the Dodge Trio concerts. Ernest W. Harrison officiated both at the organ and piano during last night's concert at Jordan Hall. His playing was remarkable for its practical excellence. In his work as organist in the choral, as well as the orchestral numbers, he showed careful and discerning judgment. When accompanying the vocal and instrumental soloists on the piano, he displayed a clearness of musical knowledge and temperament much appreciated by his audience, and in his own solo passages came out brilliantly and strongly, doing much to make a pleasing program still more pleasing.— “Herald, Boston.” Mr. Harrison played in a magnificent and masterful manner, and he won new laurels for himself in the musical world.— “Seattle Post-Intelligencer.” OVSE-SWAIN, BOSTON
